1 THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA WE GAVE YOU HOPE YOUR PUBLIC RESEARCH UNIVERSITY SYSTEM NEEDS YOUR HELP FIGHT FOR IT The University of California is considered to be the greatest system of public higher education in the world. It has an enrollment of over 225,000 students. It graduates over 55,000 students a year. It has the largest continuing education program in the nation, with about 300,000 students. What does this mean to California? The University of California has been critical in providing one of the best-trained work forces in the world. It educates 13,000 health sciences students each year, and trains close to two-thirds of the medical students in California. UC research has been vital in the development of California's leading industriesfrom agriculture to biotechnology, from information technology to telecommunicationsand it will continue to drive the next wave of economic growth in the state in such new areas as nanotechnology, digital media, and green technology. UC provides over 400,000 jobs to Californians. It contributes more than $14 billion in California economic activity and more than $4 billion in state and local revenues each year. It spends more than $4.5 billion annually on research, more than two-thirds of which is granted by federal agencies. For every $1 invested in education in California, the California economy receives a $5 return. For every $1 in research funding provided by the state of California to UC, UC secures $6 more in federal and private research dollars. And UC teaches the young people of California to think, read, and write at a competitive level in a competitive world. All colleges and universities are not the same. UC is a research university, an institution of higher learning with a mandated balance between teaching and research. None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... In 1931, UC professor Ernest Lawrence designed the first cyclotron, launching the scientific use of particle physics to discover the fundamental structure of matter. The cyclotron has had a major impact on the treatment of diseases, making it possible to create in large quantities the radioactive isotopes used in medical treatments. In 1939, Lawrence received UC's first Nobel Prize for this achievement. It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

Did you ever stop to think where that almost perfect fruit was developed? The chances are all but certain that it was propagated from a cultivar developed by professors at UC. Since the 19th century, UC professors have turned what was once barren alkaline land in the Central Valley into the most productive agricultural region in the world, they have helped make California wines among the best in the world, and they have made discoveries in crop management, pest control, and agricultural machinery that have helped farmers everywhere to literally feed the world. Do you see a pattern here? It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... We all don't live in areas threatened by brush fire and few of us have out homes catch fire. But we are all grateful to those who stand ready to help in fire emergencies. Did you know that UC professors have played an important part in firefightingespecially in our annual fire seasonby developing more flame-retardant protection for firefighters in order to help better protect those who protect us? It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA WE GAVE YOU POWERFUL NEW TOOLS AGAINST WEST NILE VIRUS AND LYME DISEASE YOUR PUBLIC RESEARCH UNIVERSITY SYSTEM NEEDS YOUR HELP FIGHT FOR IT The University of California is considered to be the greatest system of public higher education in the world.

UC is a research university, an institution of higher learning with a mandated balance between teaching and research. None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... Each year, thousands of people fall victim to mosquito-borne West Nile Virus and tick-borne Lyme disease. UC is doing something about it. Recently, UC professor Ian Lipkin made significant advances in the identification and treatment of West Nile Virus, and UC professor Alan Barbour helped discover the cause of Lyme disease and produce a vaccine to prevent it, making it safer for Californians to hike, camp, or just take a walk after dinner. It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

5 THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA WE GAVE YOU NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR LOW COST SOLAR ENERGY YOUR PUBLIC RESEARCH UNIVERSITY SYSTEM NEEDS YOUR HELP FIGHT FOR IT The University of California is considered to be the greatest system of public higher education in the world.

UC is a research university, an institution of higher learning with a mandated balance between teaching and research. None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... Photovoltaic cells have traditionally been built using crystalline silicon, something that requires expensive processing and results in ridged, bulky, inflexible solar panels. UC professor A. Paul Alivisatos and his colleagues have found a way to "print" (solution-coat) the most expensive layers of a solar cell onto low-cost, lightweight, flexible plastic substrates. This makes it possible to reduce manufacturing costs and produce solar cells that can deliver as much energy and lifetime as conventional silicon cells. It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... UC may not actually have given you vitamin E, but UC professors Herbert M. Evans and Katharine S. Bishop discovered this antioxidant in 1922. Since then it has become a common part of everyday life for millions around California and the world. It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.

UC is a research university, an institution of higher learning with a mandated balance between teaching and research. None of its accomplishments would have been possible--or will continue to be possible--without this research mission. Privately paid for through... UC PhD and professor Gurdev Khush's innovations in high yield rice varieties are credited with keeping food production one step ahead of population growth in Asia. His disease-resistant and insect-resistant varieties are grown on over 50% of the world's rice acreage and feed 1 billion people globally. Californians know that they are part of a new, mutually dependent world economy, and UC is there with them. It's a different world with UC research. It would be a different world without it.
